INSPIRATIONS
Daniel Skolz is most inspired by the illustrative arts as they were in the Belle Époque—subjects of nature defined by fine-to-thick ink lining and filled with smooth blends of pastel colors.  Daniel’s work is specifically informed by the styles of art nouveau posters (think Mucha), stained glass (think Tiffany), and traditional botanical illustration (think Redouté). His current influences are ever changing, though he often incorporates elements of etchings, geometry, and negative space to push his work toward creative designs that maintain a nod toward the polished elegance of the classic styles.  Ultimately, these influences are used together to emphasize the plants, animals, and nature scenes that remind us of the people and places of our own past and present.

"One beauty of nature is its magnitude—in sheer size, yes, but also in its ability to give us perspective on the world and our place in it.  I want to help you connect with the people, places, and times that are important to you through the plants, animals, and nature scenes that represent them."

Daniel Skolz is a fine art tattoo apprentice whose work centers on subjects of nature with specialty in botanicals/florals.  There is something about being in nature that brings a sense of perspective, inspiration, and connection to many, and art can capture this essence.  With formal education in the science of botany, Daniel combines his authentic passion for plants (and their visitors!) as a subject of artistry with expertise and respect for the nature of the organism as a subject of study.

Ultimately, these influences are used together to create art that connects clients to the specific plants, animals, and nature scenes that represent their story, custom-designed to the fit and flow of the body.
